The Arduino feature started in LF100 Christmas edition.
I've got (don't ask) a KURTA graphics pad with a((n old)MAC interface)) 
(I forget the name of it, it's the mouse i/f on OLD macs.)
The hardware side of it (as I recall from Google) is simple enough, and 
should be simple to implement on the Arduino.
(Converting to USB that is.)
The s/w side of it  probably requires access  to  drivers which will 
only be in Yellow Dog stuff
(old mac stuff as you know.)
I would be interested in mucking in with hardware stuff, but I've no 
idea about YellowDog/mac s/w.
Anyone interested in helping?
